UNHCR Reviews Situation of Refugees with Jordan’s Royal Family, PM & FM


UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi meet with Jordan’s Prime Minster, Foreign Minister and King and Crown Prince to discuss the affairs and situation of refugees in the kingdom. The meetings covered cooperation between Jordan and the UNHCR, as well as means of bolstering efforts to continue providing services to refugees and supporting host communities.

Among the concerns mentioned was that there was a reduction in the support and funding for the ongoing Syrian refugee crisis, both support for IDPs within Syria but als for the millions of Syrians in host countries like Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey. FM Ayman Safadi cited the ongoing conflict in Ukraine and a shift of resources to deal with Ukrainian refugees in preference to Syria refugees.
